Your Volunteering Did Make a Difference
You helped canvass by phone or on foot in swing states for President Obama's reelection. You worked phone banks for all of our local candidates, rang doorbells, did data entry, delivered yard signs. You helped spread the word for Brad Schneider, Jan Schakowsky, Daniel Biss, Robyn Gabel, Laura Fine, Julie Morrison, Scott Drury and helped get out the vote on Election Day. -- And every one of your candidates WON!
Nice work, everybody.
